president obama will host president-elect donald trump at the white house today. in his post-election address in the rose garden, mr. obama promised a smooth transition. >> good afternoon, everybody. yesterday, before votes were some of you may have seen in which i said to the american people, regardless of which side you were on in the election, regardless of whether your candidate won or lost, the sun would come in the morning. and, that is one bit of prognosticating that actually came true. the sun is up. i know everybody had a long night. i did as well.
night. about 3:30 in the morning i think it was to congratulate him on winning the election. and i had a chance to invite him to come to the white house tomorrow, to talk about making sure that there is a successful transition between our presidencies. now, it is no secret that the president-elect and i have had some pretty significant differences. but remember, eight years ago, president bush and i had some pretty significant differences. but pren not have been more professional or more gracious in making sure we had a smooth transition so that we could hit the ground running. one thing you realize quickly in this job is that the presidency and the vice presidency is bigger than any of us. so i have instructed my team to follow the example that president bush's team set eight years ago and work as hard as we can to make sure this is a successful transition for the president elect. because the, we are now all rooting for his success.
the peaceful transition of power is one of the hallmarks of our democracy. over the next few months we are going to show that to the world. i also had a chance last night to speak with secretary clinton and i just had a chance to hear her remarks. i could not be prouder of her. she has lived an extraordinary life of public service. she was a great first lady. she was an outstanding senator for the state of new york. and she could not have been a better secretary of state. i am proud of her. a lot of americans look up to her. her candidacy and nomination was historic and send a message to our daughters all across the country that they can achieve at
that she and president clinton will continue to do great work for people here in the united states and all around the world. now, everybody is sad when their side loses an election. but the day after -- we have to remember that we are actually all on one team. this is an intermural scrimmage. we're not democrats first. we are not republicans first. we're patriots first. we all want, want what's best for this country. that's what i heard in mr. trump's remarks last night. that's what i heard when i spoke to him. directly. and i was heartened by that. that's what -- what the country
a sense of inclusion. a respect for our institutions. our way of life. rule of law. and a respect for each other. i hope that he maintains that spirit throughout this transition. and i -- i certainly hope that is how his presidency has a chance to begin. so this was a long and hard-fought campaign. a lot of our fellow americans are exalted today. but that's the nature of campaigns. that's the nature of democracy. it is hard. and sometimes contentious. and noisy. and it is not always inspiring. and then people vote. and then if we lose, we learn from our mistakes, we do some reflection, we lick our wounds. we brush ourselves back off and
we try even harder the next time. the point though is that we all go forward. with the presumption of good faith in our fellow citizens. because that presumption of good faith is essential to a vibrant and functioning democracy. that's how this country has moved forward for 240 years. that's how we have pushed boundaries and promoted freedom around the world. that's how we have expanded the rights of our founding to reach all of our citizens. it's how we have come this far. and that's why i am confident that this incredible journey that we are on, as americans, will go on. and i am looking forward to doing everything that i can to make sure that the next president is successful in that. i said before -- i think of this
you take the baton. you run your best race. and hopefully by the time you hand it off, you're a little further ahead. you made a little progress. i can say that we have done that. i want to make sure that handoff is well executed because ultimately, we are all on the same team. all right. all right. thank you very much, everybody ? ? one day a rider made a decision. the decision to ride on and save money. ng his motorcycle insurance to geico. there's no shame in saving money. ride on, ride proud. geico motorcycle,
there was shock and disbelief at the javits center election night when hillary clinton left the building without addressing her supporters some of whom had been waiting for six hours or more. hours later clinton gave her official concession speech. >> and i love you all too. last night, i congratulated donald trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country. i hope that he will be a successful president for all americans. this is not the outcome we wanted. or we worked so hard for. and i am sorry that we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country. but i feel pride and gratitude for this wonderful campaign that we built together. this vast, diverse, creative,
you represent the best of america and being your candidate has been one of the greatest honors of my life. [ applause ] i know how disappointed you feel because i feel it too. and so do tens of millions of americans who invested their hopes and dreams in this effort. this is painful. and it will be for a long time. but i want you to remember this, our campaign was never about one person or even one election. it was about the country we love. and about building an americ that is hopeful, inclusive and big hearted. we have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought. but i still believe in america, and i always will. and if you do, then, we must accept this result and then look to the future. donald trump is going to be our president. we owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power. and we don't just respect that, we cherish it.
things -- the rule of law. the principle that we are all equal in rights and dignity. freedom of worship and expression. we respect and cherish these values too. and we musde we have spent a year and a half bringing together millions of people from every corner of our country to say with one voice that we believe that the american dream is big enough for everyone, for people of all races and religions for men and
people and people with disabilities, for everyone. i am so grateful to stand with all of you. i want to thank tim kaine and ann holton for being our partners on this journey. it has been a joy getting to know them better and it gives me great hope and comfort to know that tim will remain on the front lines of our democracy, representing virginia in the senate. to barack and michelle obama,
debt of gratitude. we thank you for your graceful determined leadership. that has meant so much to so many americans and people across the world. and to bill and chelsea, mark, and our entire family, my love for you means more than i can ever express. you crisscrossed this country on our behalf, and lifted me up when i needed it most, even 4-month-old aiden who traveled with his mom. i, i know, i know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but
and hopefully sooner than we might think right now. to all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams. finally, so my friends let us have faith in each other, let us not grow weary, let us not lose heart, for there are more seasons to come and there is more work to do. i am incredibly honored and grateful to have had this chance to represent all of you in this

political feat. the feat, he heard voices that were out there that other people weren't hearing and he just earned a mandate. >> reporter: the most prominent names for cabinet posts include former new york mayor, rudy giuliani, newt gingrich, and alabama's jeff sessions. scott, as president-elect, trump will receive a detailed daily intelligence briefing. >> major garrett, grateful for your reporting across these last mont >> the candidate who fought for a decade and more to become the first woman president was ultimately caught in the wind sheer of two revolutions. obama on the left. and then trump on the right. hillary clinton's mother who was born before women could vote once told her daughter, there was no room for cowards in their house. well it took courage to make the speech she made today. perhaps the best speech of her career. and nancy cordes was there.
donald trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country. aides and supporters openly wept as clinton uttered the word that would have been unthinkable to them a day ago. >> donald trump is going to be our president. we owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. clinton and her husband both wore purple, a symbolic unity of democratic blue and republican red. even as she acknowledged her party's agony. >> i know how disa feel, because i feel it too. this is painful. and it will be for a long time. >> reporter: painfully unexpected. clinton faltered in a trio of states essential to her strategy. michigan, still too close to call today. pennsylvania, where she led two weeks ago by eight points. and, supposedly safe wisconsin. where she hadn't campaigned in seven months. the cull pretty wasn't complicated.
game. a sign of ambivalence for a candidate dogged by an e-mail scandal and a record of evasiveness. who tried to sell experience to a nation looking for change. >> i have had successes and i have had set backs. >> clinton told young women today not to get discouraged. history had slipped her grasp twice. >> this loss hurts. but please never stop believing that fighting for what's right is worth it. i know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling. but someday, someone will, and hopefully sooner than we might think. >> her runningmate, tim kaine who goes back to the senate suggested clinton's gender was at the root of her loss. >> she has made history in a nation that is good at so many things but made it uniquely
elected to federal office. >> reporter: clinton and her aides were so sure she would win that they had transition meetings scheduled for today. instead, scott, she held a conference call with thousands of staffers and volunteers, thanking them for their service. and wishing them well. >> nancy cordes, we thank you for your service over the last year and a half. thank you very much. in the heat of the campaign, the president said that trump is not fit or qualified to president. but this morning, mr. obama called trump to invite him to inspect his latest real estate acquisition. the white house. tomorrow. this was the president today in the rose garden. >> so i have instructed my team to follow the example that president bush's team set eight years ago and work as hard as we can to make sure this is a successful transition for the president elect. because we are now all rooting

>> now our president. >> for every pro-trump post like the one that said the election was an ultimate vindication there was one like chuck daly's. america made the choice to go backwards. >> caitlyn, what kind of mood are you in today? >> great mood. >> saquib? >> i'm scared. >> kaitlyn, a college student. and muslim tell america'ster today. looking at the same election and drawing two very different conclusions. >> the silent majority spoke during this election. the american people chose their president. they chose donald trump. i think we need to focus on unifying the country and moving forward. >> i woke up this morning the only feeling i could equate it to was how i felt post 9/11. that feeling still hasn't gone away. >> reporter: in the rose garden, president obama did his best
drawing us all together. >> we are not democrats first. we are not republicans first. we are americans first. >> but as the saquib saw it, it will take much more than a presidential nudge. >> both sides need to be able to express their views. both side need to listen. i think both sides need to feel that they're, they're standing in this country, they're standing as americans. as equal. >> since the results were finalized, the #trumppresident has been retweeted 742,000 times. the #he'snotmypresident was retweeted 180,000, scott in the first hour alone. >> jim, thank you. now we will go to john dickerson, our political director and anchor of "face the nation." john, tomorrow donald trump at the white house will shake president obama's hand and then immediately proceed to dismantle obama's achievements.
when the president spoke today he said he was heartened by donald trump's victory speech in which donald trump suggested the kind of bipartisanship that we associate with parties coming together. but the minute donald trump becomes president, there is two chances for immediate partisan conflict. the first is he will name a supreme court nominee. that for democrats is a partisan rallying point. because the supreme court nominee will determine the ideological course for the, for the court. a four-four split at the moment. paul ryan said he has a piece of legislation he just wants donald trump to sign. that would undo barack obama's signature domestic legislation. >> maxim of politics that revolution is easy, but governing is hard. what do we know about his management style? >> from the campaign we know it has its chaos moments. he had three campaign managers. now he finally, stuck with one at the end. but then he also did something that was extraordinary.
conventional wisdom of politics. he also brought in some new people who had not been involved in politics. that won the day for him. voters say they want to make sure that he listens to his advisers and he does have as major mentioned, newt gingrich, rudy giuliani, chris christie, who he did listen to, and rei reince. he seem to be able to do that. the one to watch is vice president mike pence. a lot of republicans think pence will have a big role which might change the way this white house is structured. asking what would happen to the republican party after eat election? now it is the democratic party they're talking about? >> right who is the leader of the democratic party? not an easy question to answer. there will be some jockeying. and also somebody to stand in and represent the 59 million people who voted for hillary clinton. a lot of the people are very depond e dedespondent today. john dickerson.
sanders and newt gingrich. >> the trump victory will reset relations with russia. and elizabeth palmer is in moscow. >> reporter: russia's enthusiasm for donald trump's win was on show at watch parties all over moscow. ? we are the champions ? >> this is the victory that american people brought to the whole world. >> at the kremlin, president putin said trump's victory was a america. it is not our fault they'ren such poor shape, he said. but russia is ready to restore them. ? that's music to the ears of russian citizens like these who came out to wave the flag in a national unity march last week. they want an end to the tough u.s.-led economic sanctions imposed on russia after putin annexed crimea in 2014. music to the ears of put spin,
white house, was trump's personal praise of him. >> i am going to say great things about him. i said he is really very much of a leader. >> the kremlin took an opportunity last weekend to parade some world war ii military hardware. this is what putin yearns to reclaim. an era when russia was a major player, and wasn't subject to u.s. pressure or u.s. lectures on democracy. e that is dawning now, scott. with a trump administration so tied up intrigue to manage deeply divided america, that it has neither time nor energy to try and manage russia too. elizabeth palmer beneath the clock tower for us tonight. thank you, liz. coming up next, crunch the

less than 60 million in the popular vote with clinton ahead by only 200,000. anthony mason shows us how trump scored his upset. >> of the trump victory was built on several key pillars, scott. trump won men, 53-41. but he also won white women by a similar margin. his greatest strength, came from whites without a college degree. he had nearly a 40-point edge among those voters. whe important quality they were looking for, number one was a candidate who can bring about change. donald trump won 83%. after the release of the access hollywood tape, some republican leaders unendorsed trump. looked like there could be defections from ranks. it didn't happen. he won 81% of conservatives and white evangelicals, 9 of 10 republicans voted for trump. at the same time, clinton
groups in the democratic coalition. she won 55% of young voters. but mr. obama took 60% four years ago. she won 88% of the african-american volt. president obama had 93% in 2012. with the hispanic vote where early voting suggested new strength for clinton, she polled 65%. mr. obama polled 6 points higher. in the end, republicans came home, democrats it seems stayed home. finall13 their mind in the last week. and they broke strongly for trump in key battleground states. he won a majority of late deciders in pennsylvania, wisconsin, michigan, and florida. the biggest margin in wisconsin, 58-31%. that's why donald trump had surprising strength in those states. scott. >> insight from anthony mason. thank you, anthony. when we come back, students
little dakota's nose was quivering in fear. because it knew an ordinary tissue was near. so dad slayed the problem with puffs plus lotion, instead. puffs have pillowy softness for dakota's tender nose. with lotion to comfort and soothe when she blows. don't get burned by ordinary tissues. a nose in need deserves puffs, indeed. now get puffs plus lotion in the squeezable softpack. (coughs) that cough doesn't sound so good. well i think you sound great. move over.
it'll take care of your cough. fine! i'll text you in 4 hours when your cough returns. one pill lasts 12 hours, so... looks like i'm good all night! ah! david, please, listen. still not coughing. not fair you guys! waffles are my favorite! ah! some cough medicines only last 4 hours. but just one mucinex lasts 12 hours. start the relief. ditch the misery. let's end this. pre-election jitters gave way to major mood swings in the markets. as trump racked up electoral votes last night. dow futures plunged.
but trump's calm acceptance speech seemed to reassure the markets and stocks rallied today lifting the dow more than 250 points. the trump victory was met with protestsen a number of cities to. day, berkeley, california, thousand of high school students and teachers, walked out of class. there were also marches in new york city. several hundred people in columbus circle not all that far from trump tower. in chicago, a huge crowd, possibly in the thousands, protested in the street outside trump's hotel. the republican bush family did not appreciate the way trump treated jeb during the primaries. and the 41st and 43rd presidents declined to vote for him. but today george and george w. bush telephoned trump to congratulate him. and jeb bush tweeted trump. saying, he would be praying for him. up next, how the wisdom of the founders has kept the fire of liberty burning all these
faults in these campaigns? passion that partisanship. absurd judgment. ambitious self-serving behavior. well if so kid those are the word that john adams used in 1776 to advocate for a constitution with three branches of government. separate, equal, and hopelessly encumbered by hobbles known as checks and balances. james madison called the separation of powers, the liberty. the american government is inefficient, these days we call it gridlock. but that is what the founders were striving for. a system that would slow down even stop when politics became too partisan, absurd, and self-serving. the constitution is a circuit breaker that prevents real damage. if you are among those who believe this was the election no one saw coming, you are mistaken.
imagined the horizons of our modern world, but the range of human nature is ever the same. from the second floor windows of a building in philadelphia, they could see a distance of 229 years. are you going to get what you want from the next government? no telling. are we going to be okay? no question. that's the "overnight news" for this thursday. for some of you, the news continues. for others, check back with us just a little bit later for "the morning news." be sure not to miss "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new

sorry she did not win. >> to all of the women, and especially the young women, who and in me, i want you to know g- that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion. >> clinton also urged the crowd to pursue their dreams and to fight for what they believe in. the trump victory caught pollsters and a lot of other analysts by surprise. anthony mason said there were several factors that put trump in the white house. >> the trump victory was built on several key pillars. trump won men, 53-41. he also won white women by a similar margin. his greatest strength came from whites without a college degree. he had nearly a 40-point edge among those voters. when we asked voters the most important quality they were looking for? number one was a candidate who can bring about change. donald trump won 83% of these voters. now after the release of the "access hollywood" tape, some
trump and it looked like significant defection among republican ranks but it didn't happen. he won 81% of conservatives and white evangelicals. 9 out of 10 republicans voted for trump. at the same time, clinton underperformed with three key groups in the democratic coalition. she won 55% of young voters, but mr. obama took 60% four years ago. she won 88% of the african-american vote and president obama had 93% in 2012. even with the hispanic vote that early voting suggested new strength for clinton, she polled only 65% and mr. obama pulled six points higher. in the end, the republicans came home and democrats it seemed stayed home. finally. 13% of voters made up their mind in the last week and they broke strongly for trump in key battleground states. he won a majority of late deciders in pennsylvania, wisconsin, michigan, and florida.
had surprising strength in those states. >> that was anthony mason reporting. as trump prepares to take office, names are being floated for top administration positions. most are those loyal to trump while many gop leaders kept their distance. former speaker of the house newt gingrich is reportedly being considered for secretary of state. former new york city mayor rudy giuliani for attorney general. and alabama senator jeff sessions as the possible secretary of defense. before trump takes office. the job of picking an administration has already begun. and besides winning the white house, republicans retain control of the senate and the house. speaker paul ryan, who has had a rocky relationship with donald trump, called trump's win the most incredible political feat he has ever seen. >> our house majority is bigger than anyone expected. we won more seats than anyone
donald trump provided the kind of coattails that got a lot of people over the finish line so we could main our strong house and majority. now we have important work to do. >> ryan also said congress plans to hit the ground running once the trump administration takes over. congressional leaders are already crafting an agenda and we will have more on that coming up on "cbs this morning." new hampshire senate race was decided by just 716 votes. governor maggie hassan was declared the winner late yesterday over first-term republican kelly ayotte. the race cost about $120 million. more than 170 million per vote. ayotte backed block is president obama's supreme court pick. new hampshire's other senator is also a democrat. three democratic women will make
